(1/2) Hello! Glad to see a new member of the script fam. Seems like just yesterday Aunt Scripty joined tumblr. You're exactly the kind of blog to help me with this problem I've been having, too! So, my story is about pirates, and...

(2/3) …every ship is named after a mythical figure, which symbolizes what function that ship serves in the narrative. My main pirate crew have just been attacked and taken prisoner by a military patrolship, which incidentally takes them…

(3/3) [turns out this is a 3-part ask] …To the military HQ, which conveniently is exactly where the crew needed to go. So, can you think of any characters from GREEK MYTHS who a) capture a hero, or b) transport a hero somewhere? Thanks! Much love

Wow! Long ask :)

So the first thing that comes to mind is that you’ll probably want names from the Odyssey. Odysseus certainly gets captured a lot. But very few of those captures involve him being transported anywhere. So let’s go a little less obvious.

Now, you’re definition of “hero” is going to influence the names a lot. The modern idea of what a “hero” is doesn’t actually line up really well the the “heroes” of Ancient Greece (pretty much all of the classical heroes are jerks in at least one major way), so we can change it to be “protagonist” or you can broaden things up and think of other characters with cool personalities and abilities.

Let’s start with protagonists and their captors.
